Braze with what kind of rod?

Just your average flux coated bronze brazing rod. Im never to specific at the welding store I tell them 5 pounds of brazing rods and I get what they give me and Ive never had a problem.

Same for me. Brass melts easier than copper so it will work ok. I don't even use brazing rod much of the time. I just use spelter ( bits of old brass ferrules cut up) and flux with borax. A MAPP gas torch will do it on smaller work or you can do it in a forge. Clean the joints well and wire the pieces together before taking a heat.
